Bolthole by the sea

Why they came to Stacks

Mr and Mrs W are busy London professionals who needed help to find and secure a holiday home in a competitive market.


What they were looking for

A character cottage with at least 3 bedrooms, good transport links and outside space, in a location that offered plenty to see and do. Maximum budget £400,000.


What the local area offer could offer

East Devon offers an unspoilt rural lifestyle, with views, walks and great country pubs…with access to the beaches of the Jurassic Coast in under 20 minutes.


How Stacks helped

Stacks worked closely with local agents to get advance notice of any quality properties that were within the budget. We viewed, supplied a video to our clients and advised whether they should view. Advice was given on what each location had to offer.


The happy outcome

We found a pretty 3-bedroom cottage in the village of Axmouth, within walking distance of Axminster Harbour, Seaton beach and some great pubs. The cottage had been operating as a holiday let, so our clients were also able to purchase most of the furniture, fixtures and fittings which suited both parties.


How Stacks made a difference

  • Local knowledge to advise on a perfect holiday location, how busy the surrounding roads will be, things to see and do etc.
  • Relationship with agent to view early and quickly
  • Booked comfortable accommodation in a local pub for our client to stay in when they viewed
  • Recommended a good local Surveyor and Solicitor
  • Working with Stacks helped to sway the agent when choosing which offer to recommend to the vendor.
